This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

ON THE ANNUAL BILL OF MORTALITY. 

Vitte sum/ma hreois spem nosvttal inchoare longam. Hoit. 

AGAIN we look with fearful eje ., ' > 

On Death's continued page ; 
Again with Tailing tears descry 

The fell of youth and age. 
One ere the blossom can unfold, 

The blossom sweet and fair, 
Just peeps— perceives the Seasons oold^ 

And shuns tb' inclement air. 
Another, like the spreading Oak, ' " 

Expands his brandies round, 
Nor dreads the unexpected stroke 

That fells him to the ground. 
In virtiie firm, a few take root ; ' 

(But, ah! how few are they!) 
Then drop like fine well-cultur'd fruit, 

Delicious in decay. 
When Man at first receiv'd his breath. 

And from the dust arose, 
Saw spread before him Life and Death, 

Alas 1 how ill he chose. 
But blame not Adam— still do we 

Choose just as Adam chose; 
Eternal glory though we see, 

' We take eternal woes ! 
We hear the voice of God from high. 

And Conscience call within ; 
We see a bleeding Saviour die, 
, Yet sink confirm'd in sin ! ■ 

As the tree falls, so must it lie, 

And under foot be- trod : 
Impure and filthy if we die. 

Can we behold our God f 
Each year the numbers I recount; 

O may they joyful rise ! 
Drink life from God's eternal fount, 
. And flourish in the skies. 
Northampton, Dec. 31.

Mr. Urban, Bedford^ Julg 25. . 

IN the third volume of Lord V'alen- 
tia'a Travela, lately published, is 
an InBcription, copied from a <:o- 
)umn in a Mosque at Dauiietta. His 
Lordabip informs us Fp. 4S0), that to 
bin) "it U nuile untntelligible : that 
it is cerlaialu not entire/g in Greek, iMf r 
atlif othtr ckaractem, bvl teeuutabe 
Cabaliilic." 

To me it appears to he pure Greek. 
Above it is a Cross, flourished aod 
qmameuted, rather defaced at the 
suromil. The form of the letters 
(which ari3 all cajntals) is the fame 
as is now usedliy the modern Greek* 
ia their books printed at Venicu and 
tbe liinian Islands. In the characters 
employed by our Printers, it would 
be aa follows: 

MNHIBHTl M[OT 
KE EN TH BAI;[IAEIA EOT, AIA 
TON ZON AOTAON [TON AnON 

rEOprioN. 

t'Aytet riirpyi; 
I have restored the letters which 
appear to me to have been defaced, 
at the end of tbe first, second, and 
Ibird lines. 

K'E is a very commuD abhreviaT 
tion for KT?IE. 



St. Georre ia the Patron SaiiK of 
the Greek Church. Tbe Inacription, 
therefore, may be thus translated : 
" Lord I remember me in Iby kiiig-'- 
dom,for the sakeof (or through thein- 
tercessioii of) thy servant St. George." 

You will readily perceive, that 
this P.pitapb is e;ipressed nearly ia 
the woid^of the penitent Malefactor 
to Our Saviour on the Cross ; Luke 



" Lord, ri^member me, when thou earnest 
in thy Kiogdom."

by the Roman*, and fortified with 
lofly towers and bjgh-built walli; and 
it was for a contiderable time the teat 
of the BoBian Emperors.

M folbived by HI) .\ccuuiit of tlic Life

and it would give us pleasure to sup-

■ta merits vete it practicable to fol- 
low the Author thruugh it. The cha- 
racter given at the close deserves par- 
I ticulnr cummendatiun, aiid'teinjits us 
1 to exhibit an abstract of part of it to - 
our Readers. Mr. Bruce procured 
many enemies bf the expreasioo of 
his virtuwus indignation excited b^ 
the immoral conduct of some of his 
coDtemporaries ; - henoe persons uf 
doubtful character avoided bis so- 
cietVi and directed many a poisonuui 
shaft at his fime- Full of conhdence 
in the uprightnen of his owfa inten- 
tions, and conscious of the acquire- 
inents he had in possession, Any at- 
tempts of his neighbours to assume 
cUitns to which he koeivthey had no 

Cretensioas, he imraediAtely upgiosed, 
nt at the saine time was uniformly 
friendly and attentive to those who 
acted diftarsntly. Though he (Us- 



charged all. his pnbric duties vrilti m- 
^erior ability, he was «til) more ny 
specUblc in his private ttalion, e*er- 
cisin;^ the duties of a father and a. 
husband vrith the mast amiable pn>- 
priely. He was in the constant hafrit 
' of displaying the munificence whii^ 
had distingnisiied his ancestors; be- 
haved with the greatest kindness to 
his doines^cks, and rejoiced in tiie 
happinesn uf all around hiw. He eo< 
Icbrated the feudaJ fc<ilivals of his 
predecessors in tht pre*ence'«f k'^ 
tenants with genuine pleasure, sui 
was particularly delighted by 'lieir 
pleasantry and ruiti . humour. Them ' 
was nulhin^ iu the habits uf Mr. 
Bruce vhich distiuguisheil him from 
other temperate men t bnt he ea- 
gerly, and ardently pursued his de- 
sii;ns and literary Isibours. 

The principal defect to which he 
was 'subject arose froitr (be indul- 
gence of an irritability iii h\s temper, ' 
and a tendency to aua|iiciou; thesq 
produced capricious enmities, though 
generally his dislikes were well found- 
ed. His least generous and deter- 
mined, enemies magnified his attach- 
ment to the honours of ancestry and 
the relation of his owu exploiis iitlo 
vices; the fornter was derived fron 
the loyalty and patriotism of hi* fof«- 
iathcrs, and m^e him an atlectiuaate 
and loyal subject ; the latter was cer- 
tainly pardonable when ihe extraor- 
dinary and interesting nature of them 
is properly considi'red. fosssssed of 
a [lerlect knowledge of the French 
natiiinal character, he fdt convinced 
that the frenzy of their procecdingt 
would tend merely to produce a He- 
volution only in persons and places, 
without the srnallest advaacemeot of 
Rational Liberty; and Up. wept whea 
he heard of the violent death of the 
mild Munarcb uf France, justly ds- 
precatmg the po^ibility uf similar 
acts of vi«lcncB in the surrounding 
countries of Europe. His rcligiouf 
fiiib was founded ona convicljon of 
the existence of a super in tendinr ' 
Providence, and (be rules for li£. 
given iu the inspired Writings. Ua 
felt no particular attachment lo any 
one of the numerous sects which p<ie- 
v.iil in all directions; and omitted no 
opportunity lo expuic the errors and 
flights of Fanaticis i<. At the Mine 
time it might he perceived that hit 
wonderful escapes from repeated and 
dreadful ivisttt had nven him a

hare the suftrage of all our most Ju- 
dicious readers, when we have made 
tluim better acquainted with the de- 
sigvand execution of the abofa-named

and end of all education ; and eren before 
children are capable of readiug, tlijnr 
memory should be stored with tbe leadins 
principles of divine truths and moral du- 
ties. A genc-ral knowledge also of ttta 
nutore and qualities of things, and of the 
objects around them, may likewise be ac- 
quired by oral iastruction : ^e more tbey 
learn in this way, the more anxious ttiey 
will betoread, in order to gain further iri- 
fbrmiitian on what had prasiously arrested 
their attention. Children are naturally 
curious and inquisitive ; and those pro- 
pensities, if propcriy directed, will lead 
to the happiest results.

The » Catechism «f General Know-

the Reader aj lollows i 

" In proBeciition of his design of coin- 
piling a i»riea of Catechisms on some of 
the more important branches of educatioh, 
it oocnrred to the ambor, that one em- 
brauing the general principles of Human 
KooolMge, could not fail ti. be accept- 
able, especially to those who bi 
tinio or opportnaity for 
to othsrs, in happier circumsuncss, it 
would furnish useful hinU, aOd stimulate 
to farther enquiry. 

"Perhaps no work within the sameconl- 
pasa eter included so miMy subjeoti ; 
and though it was impossible, within 'he 
limits prescribed, to enter into details, 
it is hoprt that the definitions ond cxpla- 
natjons will be found correct as far as 
flley go, and that evety thing will leod to

ject ; but convinced Ibat he cannot rimder 
a more useful or acceptable service to the ■ 
publick than by resuming hi^ design, lie 
has noiv peifnrnied j: in part, and hopes 
speedily lo complete the whole. 

" In every rountty the Econouv, of

' The liwr-mentioned tobjrtt is of

gestion of Dr. Mavor's sliall b'c tran- 
t^ribed. 

" I am sorry lo rtmarh, thiit the local 
surgeons and nptithecaries are not only iin- 
■ Ekiltiii, but piejudice<l. The Sm»l]-poi, 
even in iU mildest form, to thcni was a 
beneGcisl source of income: and though 
I am unrilling tu iin|iute KiSsh views to

to agipoint peisons duly educated Ju the 
■Tennvrian school, to districts' and coun-

lalrn; the poor, and the privilogi: of beinj 
paid and en)()!oyed by Uie rich." — Tlie 
persons I allude to, and vish to see ap- 
pointed, should he oliliged to take tbs cir- 
cuit of their districts at regular periods, of 
n^icb public notice Kliould be given for 
Ibc poor to allenil tliem i and tlity should 
f^onliune in oAe town or nciglibourhood 
till they liad seen the progress and termi- 
nation of (he disease on the inoculated, 
and be able to grant ceitiGcatee that they 
were safe. I would restrain them fi-om 
practising any other branch of the medical 
profession, that they might dctote thuir 
whole attention to ibis ; and I am certain 
that the small sum of 100/. per unaum, 
fbr a ccunty, to inoculate the poor, and 
the chance of being paid by penons in 
easy Ciri'um stances, would be of rnoro 
public service Uian millions which are an- 
nually eipended for other purposes." — 
2' "But wouhl you compel the poor to 
be vaccinated i" A. "No. In a free 
country, and where the prejudices of the 
f cople ought to be consulted, no compul- 
sion slionld be resorted tc. It might in. 
deed be rendered penal to inoculate fur 
the Small-pox, because it would be an 
otTcTice against society i but as for Vac- 
' cinalion, if it were one* gratuitously of- 
SeM, if the Clergy were to exert them- 
celves in their respective parishes, wbicii 
they cannot at present conscientiuusly do 
frith incoinpctCHt practitioners, in a. very 
short time, botli poor and rich would ea- 
gerly embrace this ijoporlant discovery; 
and the Small-pox, as I have already said, 
would bb wtiully extirpated." 

Upon the whole) nc recammcDil

cuted plan, from which the greatest 
good may be derived in. the most im-

PROFESSEDLY intending this to 
be " an introductory Booli," Mr. 
'S^'hittaker "commcncesvith the cha- 
racteristic distinction of the declen- 
sion- of nonns substantive, and tbe 
conjugation uf verbs." 

" A Table of the termination of active . 
and passive verbs is given lor reference, 
ulicu a boy may be in doubt. Ten verbs 
are expressed under a variety of Klrms. . 
Short examples tbllow, of the best olasai~ 
cal authority, under ten rules in Syntax 

with the English and Latin on opposite 
pages, 

" The secoi>d part contains sentences 
under all the rules of Syntax in ordrr, as 
nearly as possible, as Ibey are arrHoged 
in all Latin Grammars. These examples 
also are literally translated from Roman 
writers of unquestionable purity. The 
F.nglisli and Latin are litewise in this part 
on apposite pages. 

" In the third part the examples are gi- 
ven without any Latin annexed, with the 
exception of an occasional word or pbrase. • 
These sentences ate selected (rom the 
best classical authors, and are translated 
as literally as the idioms of the diSerent 
languages will allow." 

Mr. Whittaker ba* evidently taken

The'Chancfllor qf the Eichequcr o-pposed 
the motion, from the conviction that no- 
thing new conld be brougbt to light Cor 
' which they were not at present competent. 
Were such a Committee appointed, he 
believed, it would be the fir|l ever insti- 
tuted on general surioise, to seek for 
abuses when unconnected with an; parti- 
cular individual. On these grounds he 
' opi>ospd the motion, and on these grounds 
he trusted the House would not grant it 
their support. 

Lord Hamillaa, Messrs. U'hilhicad, IIul- 
chimon, fVyntu, ParneV, and Moan.; sup- 

Xsrted the motion ; which was opposed h; 
ord H. Petty, Messrs. taiaiiig, Ponsoriby,

ground of the motion being too undefined.

On the raption df Sir C. Price, for the

jected to its tiKher progress, as tendiiig 
materially to injure many i^ho had for a 
long time residod where the Market now

possessirg rstates ip the vicinity of tha 
Foundling Hospital. He should move that 
the sccoi^ reading of the Sill be deferred

Mr. Rase said, that, in former years, 
100,000 head of cattle was gencr.iIVy the 
utmost whieb had been sent to it; but lat- 
teriy, this number wai iiicreased to 1 50,000. 
The consequence of thia increase was, that 
the cattle were crowded to sudi a degree, 
that they not only injareil themselves, but 
those who come for the purpose of either 
buying or examining them. — After some 
further discussion, Mr. Alderman Combe's 
amendment was carried without a division. 

Mr. Pametl then made his promised . 
motion for equalizing the currency in 
Great Britain and Ireland, by making Bank 
of England Notes a legal tender in the 
sister Kingdom, and also for the issuing 
of anew cjinagc for the whole of tlie United 
Kingdom. 

Messrs. Poster, Ponsanby^, O'Nara, Tiorit- 
toh, and D.Girldij, stated their belief of 
the impmctieatiility of the plan, when the 
motiou was negatived willioid a division. 

The House then went into a Committee 
forthe Militia Completion Bill ; two divi-

for imposing a fine of 20/. ^rr man upon

April 19. 

The House resolved itself into a 
Committee on the Bankrupt Law Amend' 
ment Bill. On the ulause being read by 
wiiii-h a Bankrupt; after he had obtained 
his certificate, but before he had given 
his release for his allowances, was » be 
rendered a competent witness, in any cause 
relating to his est,itu iu which bis assignees 
were the claimants : 

Sir S. liomill;!, in order to obviate some 
objectionstthieh existed gainst this clause, 
proposed, as an an^eiidment, that the bank- 
rupt should not be so rendered a ovrnpe- 
tent uitnijss, until he had given a rel^sc 
as la lijs interest in the particular matter 
at issue; which, after some discussion, wait 
agrBcd to. 

A conversation between Mr. Ctoker, Sr 
S. Kumiilij, and the Solicitor Genrral, took 
place, bn th^ clause for empowering the 
Lord Chancellor, Lord Keeper, or Lords 
Coniinissioncrs for the time being, 'instead 
of personal ser\'ice to creditors of Irish 
Bankrupt^ iu England, and itce verta, to 
empOB-er the creditors in tiie country of 
the bankrupt to gi^c intimation in th; 
Dublin or London Gazettes as the case 
uii^t be. The clause was afterwards 
agreed to. Another lengthened diiicussioD 
took place on the clause fiir giving the 
bankrupt an appeal to the Laid Chaooellor, 
if all or four filths of his creditors refused 
to sign 4iis certificate. The A'turneij Ge- 
neral wished tlic number to be limited, in 
which Mr. Jaaii airecd with him. Mr. 
Abfrcniinl'k, Sir C. Piki, and Sir. Sltcinu 
supported the original clause, whidewas 
carried. Sercral other clauses were tlien 
brought up, and agi'ced to ; alter which 
Mr. (f-iflifan broaght up the Reportofthe 
Bill, which was rcceiteil. 

April 20. 
Mr. Hutiisson inforroed the HouSe, that, 
after the debate on Friday, being convinced 
that sonic misunderstanding with respect 
to the buildiag of Col. Gordon's house to 
the annoyance uf tlic Hospital lAust e\tit 
somewhere, he had determined to inquire 
into the matter. Ho had accordingly gone 
to Chelsea, and fbund persons digging tht 
foundation of a house," on a site which it 
certainly appeared to hiui would interfere 
with the Hospital, and in violation (as he 
lielicved, accidental) of the warrant fron 
the Treasury. In consequence of this.di>- 
covery, he had stated tlie mattef to the 
Lords of the Treasary, tlta Paypaster of 
the Forces, and others concerned, asking 
them to inspect the situation, and, if ne- 
cessary, give orders for any alteration. 
Tbey went on Monday, and, oa inquiry.

THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE. 
For AUGUST, 1809. 



Mr. UftBAN, London, Aug. i. 

IT hu often occBsionnl luqirize t« 
me. that Water, whkli cuiistilutci 
•o lai^ wid cotutaot an article of 
dvmertic use, ibould be an ohjecl of 
little or no attention with the pulilick. 
Were the nameroui wwen thai are 
eniplied into the Thanet, and the 
ipatten with which other stream* are 
i II ipr^uated, considered, moil penont 
would feel disgusted, and d(,-*irc to 
bavet]ii« verj (luiveiial fluid rendered 
more healthy and )ialatal)k. Filter- 
ing ituaei, iudeed, and other meant 
'fit purifying" water, hare been sug- 
^ited, but withoiit proTing Ddeijualc 
tolhewifheiofafBniilj. Thej ma; 
puriff tbii fluid In tmall quiinlil>e<i 
at the Mine tiqie, 1 iinagine, thej are 
liable te4he inconvenience of ttecom- 
jag foni from fediment in the water, 
lA coniequence of filtration bj dc- 

At length a gentleman inrented a 
madiipe to piirif; it by aicent, 
tbroDgh itrata of jiebble itonet, or 
pnnd, in imitation of a natural spring. . 
Thit appeared to me an object Jooi; 
wantee, and highly important j ana, 
about tiwnty years a^o, I applied tu 
my friend Peaeock, of (iLiburr- 
iqitare, and of the OfGee of Wurki 
kt Guitdhal], their.vcntor of il, to fa- 
vour mc with one, which he placed 
within a leaden ciatcni, already in the 
kitchen of my bouse; and ever lioce 
it hai continued tu supply the family 
vitb clear trautpareqt water, without 
reqnirine alteration or repair | nor 
would I D^ without it for any conii. 
deration. 

Tbe inventor has communicated to 
me the folloiring history of it, which 
1 think muit be apeeplable to every 
reader, on which account )t is trans- 
milted by J«BllCDAXL£rI.GTMO!«. 

Qfice of /Forlis, G»im*tl, 

The fvllowine is a short account 
ef my improved Machine for tbe Fil- 



tration of Fluidt, and parlitutarls 
WaUT. 

The filtering medium, or agent, is 
comniOD gravel, cleared from earth 
and loam by many repeated waabings \ 
it is then dried, and tne particles care- 
fully sorted and separated to form 
tbe levcral ilrata of^ which the filter- 
ing medium ia to consist. The vessel 
to contain the said medium i* of 
r of a cylindrical form, 
ind a half in diameter, 
and about eieht inches deep % at tb« 
bottom of lliis cylinder ii a small 
chamber, and the like near the top 
thereof, both formed by perforated 

tiatet «r gratingi, of tinned Copper : 
1 tlie intermediate space between the 
l.'iid plates ii placed the purified gra^ 
vcl in strata t tbe itratum contistine 
of Ibe griistett particle;' is placed 
upon the lower gratingi the ncx^ 
stratum, the particles whereof are 
about hulf the iize of the fint, ii then 
laid in ( and upon this the thini stra- 
tum, cuniiiting of particle* about 
one-fourth of the size of the first, apd 
this sort of law or lariei prevails in 
titc rest of the itrata up to rather 
more than one half of the height of . 
thecyliiidcr, where the iiarticlcjt of the ' 
gravel are as fine as sand. The order 
of the struta is then rcverieri, *o at 
to finiili at tlie top with the like groii 
prticlcs ;» nerc urst l»id in upon the 
lower grating i the whiile ii then 
|>re*ied tugcthrr, nud t!ie upper grat- 
ing soldered down upon it; and lastly 
the cover is soldered on. Ilwill now 
he evident that tbe filtering agent, 
f^ousistiiig ol the sand}' or finest iiart 
of the gravel, ia that stratum wliich 
re<ls in the middle of the height of 
the cylinilcr, and iJintall the superior, 
and inferior slrnla are only to keep

Our Author notices, with becoming 
•everity, the disagreeable chant in 
which some readers indulge, and which 
deprives (hem of the power of put- 
ting the emphasis io the proper place. 
To do this with judgment, requires 
considerable study and practice; lur 
is there less dilficulty iu ac<|uiring the 
art of suiting the tones of the voice 
to the sentiment and passion de-

treatise on the subiei'the would al- 
most siipiiosc was " dictated by some 
evil GeuiuR, to put a stop to the pro-

terms, uucuuUi phrases, and nura-

•ball proceed to give one extract on 
the subject of Mr. Burke's Speeches 
to the Electors of Bristol, in J7H0: 
"In the course of Mr. Barke's par- 
: )i&mentary exertions for thf six years 
that he represented Bristol, he had 
the misfortune to shock, in many in- 
ftMipes, the political and commercial, 
•I well as the religious urejudiees of 
bis Constituent*, iMrticularly by bis 
support of certain resolutions favour- 
able U> the trade' of Ireland; by his 
tdqAc nf proceeding' on lord Beau- 
champ's Bill for reforming the Law 
Process concerning Imprisonment ; 
and by his votes on the Popery Acts. 
It is probable that his writleu and 
priuted defences of those measures 
Would have softened the asperity of 
■ome of the prejudices ; but the fran- 
tic tumults about I'opury in the year 
11S0 kindled a blaze which it was not 
in the power of his eloquence to ex- 
tinguish. A Prudamalinn for dis- 
solving the Parliament, and for catl- 
ing a new one, having, been issued on 
the first of September, Mr. Burke re- 
paired to Bristol with all possible dis- 
patch i but, previously to his making 
any trial of his strength against three 
cMididales who had started before 
him, he entered into the following 
justiflcation of his public conduct, in 
a Speech addressed lo a numerous 
Meeting of the Freemen, ronvwied 
by the Mnyor; at the Guild-hall, oa 
the fith of Seplemher."

such a joint endeavour of well-dispos«l

Mr. UaaiN, ' Sept. i 5. 

BEING in potsesiion of a good 
t*any (perhap» 35 ur ^0) ot the 
fanitiar Letters of that venerable Pre- 
late, Dr. Ilok^h, Bi^up of Worcci-, 



ter, to a female ReUtion of my own 
in Ihe last century, vis. from 17!1 to 
the tinie of his death, in 1T4S (which, 
together with a few other original 
Letterifrom ArchbithopTiilolsunaod 
otbera, I have directed by my Will tu 
be deposited in tLe British Museum, 
as the pInL-e nto«t easy of accew to 
the publick) 1 have thought it might 
be worth white to publish them in 
ihy life-time, if it should please God 
tugive me health and life long enough 
for that purpo.'Wf and, though tne 
Life, and both public- and privale 
Character, of that most respectable 
and amiable man are wall knono to 
the nurld, from the many eulogies 
of Poels as well as Historians, yet, 
that it might be of service, to take 
thisopporlunityof collecting together 
these, and the many inlcresling cir> 
cumstai ces of his iife, with such few 
additioni as I might be able to pro- 

With this Tiew, I hnve searched 
the British Museum, the Bodleian 
at Oxford, and the Archives of Mag- 
dalen Collide, Osfords and, as I 
would iriiih to make this humble, 
but 1 tru«t UKfuI, pnblicatiun as ih- 
terestiug as I am able, 1 beg to sug-, 
gent lo your uumeruus. Correspund-' 
c;it;, whether they nright not' oe so 
obliging us to funiish a few additional' 
Letters or Anecdotes, bcsrdes those 
which bnve hitherto been published, 
or to suggest where tliej may he 
met with , in order that this little 
Work uiay be as complete as it is in 
my power to make it.

be thankfully acknowledged by
